God on the Mountain

Without going into detail, our family needs your prayers right now. Saints of God please pray for us, that God will give us strength, and guidance to face what ever we have to face. God is still faithful, and I know he will not fail us. I am leaning with all the strength I have left on my favorite song. I know that God is still God. In the good times, and the bad. There is some decision to be made in the next few weeks. If you can pray, please pray that God will move on this situation for the good of all involved.
God On The Mountain
Words: Lynda Randle
Life is easy when you're up on the mountain
And you've got peace of mind like you've never known.
But then things change and you're down in the valley.
Don't lose faith for you're never alone.
For the God on the mountain is still God in the valley.
When things go wrong, He'll make it right.
And the God of the good times
is still God in the bad times.
The God of the day is still God in the night.

You talk of faith when you're up on the mountain.
Oh but the talk comes easy when life's at its best.
But it's down in the valley of trials and temptation
That's when faith is really put to the test.

For the God on the mountain is still God in the valley.
When things go wrong, He'll make it right.
And the God of the good times
is still God in the bad times.
The God of the day is still God in the night.

Back from the Doctor

I am back from the Doctor and I have Pneumonia. I have never had that before. Now I understand why I have felt so bad. I also understand why I have not been able to to get any of the yucky stuff up. My Doctor said when you have Pneumonia, you can't get the stuff up. I guess that is why I felt like I could not breath at night. I am looking forward to a good night of sleep. I know Kevin is to. He did not get much rest because I coughed all night.
I got two shots, which was not fun. I also got a inhaler to help with the wheezing. Hopefully I should be better by Thursday. I am so glad I went. I had called to just see if they would call me some cough syrup and a antibiotic in.
Of course they wanted me to come in. I should be feeling much better by the weekend. Anyway just going to let you know what the Doctor said. I am going to bed to rest for a bit.


I have been sick for about 6 days now. I have had fever, chills, sore throat, and no energy. My voice is pretty much gone. When people hear me they say "You sound terrible." I have not got much sleep because I have coughed so much. When I lay down I guess the stuff drains to the back of my throat and I wake up coughing my head off. I have a appointment this afternoon, so hopefully some antibiotics and cough syrup will help me out. Brooke also has a nasty cough.

We had a nice Thanksgiving. It was sad not having my grandmother and my Father -in- law to be there with us. My mom had a really hard time with this being the first year with out my grandmother. God helped us through this.

We also had another loss in our family. We found our dog Trevor, a nice home in the country. (so we thought.) We have had many problems with Trevor and we felt we did not have the time or patience to deal with him any more. We have never been able to get close to him. He was always so scared and shy. No matter what we did, he would run and hide. Well the people we gave him to called me and said Trevor got loose and was running like wild, and they could not catch him. I spent several days in the cold, wet, air trying to find him, and that did not help my sickness.
I was sad, that we did not find him. I had rather found him dead, than to never know what happened to him. It just bothers me thinking that he is trying to find us, and he can't. The people lived like 30 minutes from us, so I am not giving up that we will not find him. I have posted some signs. Kevin don't want us to find Trevor. He says he hates feeding a dog that will not let you touch him. My sweet female Sheltie is so lonely. She will howl and cry all the time. It makes me so sad. Ginger will have a new play mate in a couple of weeks, so that helps me a little. I felt in my heart we was doing what was best for Trevor, but maybe I was wrong. Trevor bit Kevin in the summer, and so that made us nervous that he would bite the kids. I was not scared of him. I was the only one who could really pet him. Courtney is praying that Trevor will come home. I can't say that I believe God will do that for her.

Kevin and I will be married 15 years soon. Wow I can't believe how time has went by. We are planning on going away this weekend, but not sure how that will go. We have never left Brooke, and Brooke informed us that she was NOT sleeping at nobody else's house. I finally convinced her that she would have a blast with grandmother and granddaddy, so she agreed to stay there. Of course she thinks that her cousin Austin is going to be there also. Kevin and I are not going to far, because we might have to come back home and get Miss Brooke if she cries all night. I hope she does good. I am a little worried though.

Thursday is my sister's court date. Please pray for us. I get sick when I think about it. I will have to leave Brooke all day on Thursday so I am afraid that is going to make matters worse for Kevin and I leaving this weekend. We are taking the girls to the circus on Friday night. The girls are looking so forward to that.

Well I guess that is all for now.

One Sunday Morning

This is my last post for today. (I think.)
I think four in one day is pretty good. I had to share these pictures of the girls. These was taken Sunday.

Two Proud Mommy's

My girls are adopting ONE, of these puppies. Of course they want two, but I said no. They will be ready to come home in about 3 weeks. We have had some major fusses over the names for the puppy. I never new that a two year old could be so demanding and so bossy. The girls got into this name game for their puppy about a week or so ago. Courtney wanted to name the puppy Chester. I wanted to name the puppy Ollie. Well we are discussing names, and Brooke says. I want his name to be Tinkerpot. Of course I was ROTFL, when she said that. Brooke would not change her mind. No matter how many names Courtney and I came up with she said, or yelled "NO, HIS NAME IS TINKERPOT. "
After a week of Ollie, Blazer, Tinkerpot, Chester, Jasper, Poky, Marlie, Scout, Bama, and I don't know how many more, I think they have agreed to name it Bandit. I don't like it, but it is better than some they came up with. Brooke has also decided to name my dads dog. She named him Piggy, and she is not changing it. LOL

Homeschool Thanksgiving

Short Update

The Brand Children
Two cute Indian sisters.
We had some pilgrims also. "Sweet"

Things are going pretty good here. Brooke and I have a cough, that I hope goes away soon. Brooke has had it about a week now. Mine just started last night. Brooke's is worse when she lays down.
The homeschool group had a Thanksgiving lunch last Friday. It turned out pretty good. I was very tired after it, because me and another lady had been doing most of the work to get it ready. The children did posters and brought. I don't have many pictures of that because I was busy having to do other things. (Games) Games is hard to do when the group has so many ages.
I have got a good bit of cleaning done for tomorrow. I still have some to do, but nothing major. Here is a few pictures of the past week.
I might do two post of pictures because I had more than I thought.

Taking a Break


I am sorry Heather, but I just can't finish the 30 day of thanks. There are many many more things I could post about and that I am thankful for. I have a wonderful life and many blessing.
I am taking a break from blogging for a little bit. I just have a good bit of things going on right now that I need to concentrate on. My sisters court date is in a couple of weeks, and that makes me sick to think about.
My mom is wanting to have Thanksgiving at my house this year, because she don't think she can handle it at hers. Her reason is because this is the first year without my grandmother and it would just be to hard being at moms house. That is where we always have had Thanksgiving.
So that leaves me to try and get my house spotless, which I know I can't do.
I am also helping with a Thanksgiving Lunch for the home schoolers, this week. Courtney and Brooke will be working on a project for that, and they will need help.
Just to many things going on right now, so I think it is best if I stay away from blogging for a little bit. I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Brooke talking 1

Brooke had been talking a good bit until I got the camera. That is why I kept asking her so many questions. I was trying to get her to talk again.

Brooke did pretty good with my camera. Can you believe I let her use it? I kind of felt sorry for her last night with no friend to play with. Brooke and I played babies and had a picnic. She also took a picture of me, but I was not even ready for a picture. LOL
